New Beginnings Lyrics - Faith No More
Review The Song (1)
A glow in her eye
As he waved goodbye
That's where it all began
She was a loving girl
He was a caring guy
Together they had plans
They were married and had a baby
His name was Johnnie
Wait a minute, that's me
Why am I only three years old again
Spinning and spinning and spinning
There was no gleam in your eye
When you passed us by
In the parade this time
You had nothing to say
And you're always on your way somewhere
sponsored linksBut today you just stood still
You were a quiet kind of person
Who asked for nothing and got just that
So they sent you away to kill for your country
Could you blame him?
Could you blame them?
No. And in the end
When we meet again we're friends
Will we ever learn that we are always God's children
And gods never made moral decisions
They made love

Clearly this song is about a child's memories of their father going away to war. When he passes by in the parade perhaps it is him being carried by pall-bearer. No gleam in his eye, just standing there on his back (lying in a coffin) at the funeral. Or perhaps returning from a war after killing someone has made him cold and distressed, thus losing the gleam of life in his eye.
